I saw Guittard green mint chips at the new grocery store near our house so I snagged a bag and decided to make a fairly classic chocolate chip cookie with mostly green mint chips and to polish off the half-bag of miniature semi-sweet chocolate chips I had sitting in the freezer. These would have been good cookies in March, wouldn’t they?
Green mint chip cookies. Quick and easy recipe for cookies using green mint chips and optional chocolate chips.
- 1 stick (1/2 cup) butter, softened at room temperature
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 1/2 cups green mint chips
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper.
- Beat the softened butter, white sugar and brown sugar together in your KitchenAid with the paddle attachment until well-mixed, light and fluffy.
- Add eggs, coffee extract and milk and beat just until blended.
- In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add about 1/3 of the dry ingredients mixture at a time to the batter, mixing just until blended.
- Add the green mint chips (and chocolate chips if you decided to add those)
- Drop in heaping spoonfuls or use your cookie scoop to get perfect, beautifully round cookies.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 11 to 12 minutes.
- Remove from oven and let sit on pan for 2-3 minutes, then carefully move them to a wire cookie rack to cool completely.
